The soft and yielding Euros

Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?

Submitted by Sheerahkahn (United States), Jul 16, 2002 at 13:43

In Military Historical circles the discussion always comes to, "What happened to Europe?" The Nineteen Hundreds saw three great powers die before the worlds eyes. France lost of Africa, Germany's lost of the Pacific islands, and colonies in Africa, and of course the English Empire waning days were hastened by World War One.

The discussions and opinions are many, but the mutual consent was that at the end of World War Two it was evident that Europe lost the will to fight. The Europeans lackluster will to even form any large national armies to counter the massive Warsaw Pact forces told the US and the USSR how well the spine of Europe had been broken during WWII. It is partly because of this that during the Cold War years America had no other choice than to adopt a First Strike Response to any Warsaw Pact attacks. There was no way the US could conventionally repel a determined attack by herself, and Europe left America no hope of helping in anyform other meekly submitting to fate.

Today US Military Historians shake their heads in wonderment at the change Europe has gone through. Rather than stand and demand concessions from the Arab league, the Euros lay down on the ground of submission and ask what position the Arab's would like her to be in.

The Euro Union is a soft and yielding polyglot of spineless bureacrats who would sacrafice their wills and their bodies to anyone who threaten their pathetic existence by taking their investments elsewhere. Europe has changed, and not for the better.
God help us all.
